Year 9 Maths, Statistics & Probability: Investigating a Kale crop

Content Description:

  • Construct back-to-back stem-and-leaf plots and histograms and describe data, using terms including skewed , symmetric and bi modal (ACMSP282)

This resource aims to give students a context in which they can apply and demonstrate an understanding of statistical theory in a real life agricultural scenario. The scenario involves estimating probability and calculating frequencies of crop success rate and evaluating data from an experiment that tests this. Students will be required to comment upon results in mathematical terms such as skewed , symmetric and bi modal and provide advice to the fictional farmer in the scenario.
